I am writing this letter to you not to argue your point against mine but to let you know that it is so sad that people argue about their beliefs instead of just letting God’s love flow thru them to those who don’t believe. I do not believe in your theory, but I would like to tell you about my experience with God. Jesus loves you Bobby. It is sad that there are many people out there who believe in God/Jesus, but do not have a personal relationship with Him. It is sad that we have to get called names and cursed when we express our beliefs.
I John 1:5-10 – This is the message which we have heard from Him (God) and decare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him (God), and walk in darkness, we lie an do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we hae fellowhsiop with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
I am a 36 year old female that believes in God the father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit. I do believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God. I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me at the age of 7 and I have never regretted that decision. No one made me make that decision, it was my own decision. The fact is that I don’t just say a prayer to God at bedtime or when I need help with a problem, BUT I daily talk to Him in prayer and read the Bible. God speaks to us through the Bible. The problem is, there are so many people in this world that think because they go to church on Sunday or they say a prayer at bedtime that this makes them a christian. I am not a judge and only God knows their heart and if their name is written in the Book of Life (Revelations 21:27 ). If you only talk to your parents/spouse at bedtime, then do you have a relationship with them? Jesus is my spiritual Father and I love those times that I spend with Him. The fact is that God created the world, this includes the universe as well, God created all living things. God created man to praise Him. Adam and Eve sinned when they disobeyed God. If you have kids, do you punish them when they disobey? God punished them by throwing them out of the Garden of Eden, a perfect place where the lamb and lion would lie together. I believe everything the Bible says. God sent Jesus to die on the cross for everyone because HE LOVES EVERYONE!! Jesus loves you, Bobby. Jesus was mocked and beat and died on the cross for you and me. (Hebrews 7:22-28) Now we have the freewill to choose of deny God, we no longer have to offer sacrifices for our sins. This is Grace. God forgives us of our sin when we ask and repent. God is a god of love and mercy. God doesn’t want anyone to go to hell, but he has given us the freewill to choose. He isn’t going to make us serve Him. I know and believe that Jesus is real and I believe that one day He will blow a trumpet and those that are saved will rise to meet Him. I believe that there is a place that He has prepared for the saved called Heaven. I cannot wait to bow before my Lord and Savior and thank Him for all that He has done for me. Does He speak to me in an audible voice? No, but He does answer my prayers.
So what do I get out of believing in Jesus? I get a peace and joy that is unexplainable. Do I have trials and problems? yes, I do, but because I have Peace that only comes from Jesus and Joy that is unspeakable, and I have Jesus that I can talk to about anything anytime, I can make it through those problems. God is so awesome. I am a sinner saved by grace, the grace of God and I would die for it. If I were asked to deny Jesus or die, I would die. That is how much I believe in Him. He is so precious to me.
So why does God not like sin? He is my Heavenly Father and as my earthly father doesn’t want me to do things that are wrong because they hurt me or are bad for me, that is why Jesus doesn’t like sin and wants us to flee from it.
Do I believe in Hell? Yes.
Do I believe in Satan/Devil? Yes. He is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he can devour. He hates God and therefore, we are in constant spiritual battle because Satan likes to remind me of my past, but with God’s help and the scriptures from God’s Holy Word, I can keep him away. (1 Peter 5:6-7). Satan will be cast into Hell. Hell is not a fun place, it is a place of torment and gnashing of teeth, and I will be so sad for those who refused to believe and go there. (Revelations 20:10, 15) The way I look at it is this way:
If I am wrong and God is not real and there is no Heaven or Hell and I have spent my life believing in it, then I have lost nothing.
BUT, If I am right (and I believe I am) and you are wrong and don’t believe in Jesus , then you have everything to loose. It will be a sad day for you and all of those people you have worked so hard to be against Jesus. (Revelations 21:7-8)
Please, if you have any questions, or if you want to know more about what I believe, email me. You have the right to believe whatever you want, but wanted to let you know why I believe in Jesus.
In Jesus love and service,
